The Olympic Village is always a giant orgy, and Tinder is helping to spread the love

0

It's no surprise that the Olympic Village is often one of the biggest hookup hotbeds on the planet. When you get 10,000 incredibly fit athletes in one place, eager to let off some steam after perhaps years of training, it makes a little sense.

But this year, Tinder is adding fuel to the fire. 

Tinder says that in Rio's Olympic Village, matches using their dating app spiked 129 percent since the games began.

But as you can see, some athletes started their Tinder game early -- and made us all a little jealous with the best beach bodies of all time.

U.S. swimmer Ryan Lochte's new profile was spotted during pre-Olympic training.

If you're in the Olympics, it's OK if your Tinder bio has pants you can see from space.

OK, now you're just rubbing it in, Louis Smith. (Look at the bottom left photo.)

To help ensure the action at the Olympic Village stays safe, a total of nine million condoms were given out by the Brazilian government, Quartz reports.

There are 11,521 athletes in Rio. That breaks down to about 780 condoms per athlete. Keep in mind, the Olympics are only 16 days long.

So if some athlete wants to use up his or her fair share of condoms, that means at least 48 hookups a day.

Good thing there aren't network TV cameras inside Olympic Village rooms. 

"OK, but aren't the Olympics ALWAYS like this?" 

Well, kind of. But the number of condoms, at least, seems to increasing rapidly.

In the 1988 Seoul games, 8,500 condoms were handed out. Then in Sydney in 2000, 70,000 were brought in, plus another 20,000 more after they ran out. The last Summer Olympics in London featured 150,000 condoms.

So Rio, for all its many, many problems, might have this record under wraps. 

Dating apps aren't entirely new. Tinder was so distracting in Sochi that snowboarder Jamie Anderson had to delete her account, according to US Weekly.

And Grindr was so popular in London, the app crashed before the games even started, Mirror reports.
